I give a number of examples of how a lot of modern Bible translation societies are putting the names of "supreme beings" in the Bible in the place of God or YHWH. In this article I'm going to examine two of the excuses they make for making those substitutions in the Bible in many hundreds of different languages today. (1) They claim that God has many different names and therefore they think they are justified in putting the names of various gods of various cultures in Bibles, as long as they are considered "supreme beings". (2) The second excuse they give is that the names of the "gods" they are placing in the Bible are generic terms for God, like the words "God", "Theos", "Dios" and "Elohim". By generic I mean a word that can be used for any deity whether of the one true God or other false gods who claim to be God.
I will go through both of these excuses and show that they are both unbiblical, therefore the Bibles they have translated with names of other gods in them, or names they claim are generic, prove that they have "blasphemized" those Bibles.

Peggy Noonan wrote in her weekly Wall Street Journal column this past December 4th her concerns that "The censorship movement is radical. It is starting to make everyone in the country feel harassed and anxious. It is odd to see candidates miss a rising issue that is giving pause to so many Americans. I pray someone will address it. Literally, I just did. This Herescope post is an answer to her prayers. It may be an unexpected answer and a politically incorrect answer, but nevertheless it is a response. It represents an exercise in the right of free speech and freedom of religion.
Do you want to know if a church or organization is part of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR)? Finding the answer may not be as easy as looking at the church's statement of faith. Many NAR groups have adopted fairly standard statements of faith that do not mention their NAR teachings. To find out what a church really believes you have to dig deeper.

Richard Foster is known for his book "Celebration of Discipline." Few are aware that it contains numerous New Age teachings in it. Foster's book Celebration of Discipline, has sold several million copies, was selected by Christianity Today as one of the top ten books of the 20th century. Christianity Today named it number eleven in the "Top 50 Books That Have Shaped Evangelicals." Despite their endorsement, it is a book that should be avoided at all costs. This may sound harsh to some but if you hear what Foster teaches it become apparent, it is not what the Bible teaches.
